Yeah, I tried removing all the config files (I entirely erased the contents of ~/.kde. Twice). It works under root, but not for any of the users, so I suspect the real cause is related to the fact that except for root, all the user logins are provided via OpenLDAP, and all the home directories are kept on one machine and exported via NFS. I've played around with the settings on both, but I still haven't managed to figure it out, and the odd thing is the same settings worked fine with KDE4 on Fedora 9.
